Tom Udall: Trump’s Billionaires Have ‘Serious Problems’ with Financial Entanglements

‘They have all sorts of financial ties around the world’

VELSHI: "Senator, you are one of six democratic senators who sent a letter last night to president Trump’s commerce secretary, Wilbur Ross, raising concerns about the banking deals with Russia. Tell me about this. Is this related to the Flynn revelations?"
UDALL: "What this is about is the president hired millionaires and billionaires in his cabinet. They have all sorts of financial ties around the world and as with Wilbur Ross, with Russia. So, people want to know, are they going to be acting on behalf of their financial interest and future financial interest or are they going to be acting in the public interest? So, it’s a big issue. That’s why we signed that letter to try to get to the bottom of what’s happening. As you know, many of these millionaires and billionaires that Trump has hired have serious problems in terms of their entanglements around the world on economic and other issues."
